Welcome From Captain Joseph Morici


I'm Captain Joe Morici, and I am in my 29th year of service with the SLMPD. I have been assigned to numerous police units, districts, and positions throughout my time of service. A few of my previous assignments and experiences include: Intelligence Unit, Warrant and Fugitive Section, Tactical Operations Unit, Narcotics Division, Mobile Reserve Unit, and the Specialized Weapons and Tactics Team (S.W.A.T.). I have had the privilege of serving neighborhoods and communities throughout the entire metropolitan area to include North St. Louis, Downtown, Riverfront, Midtown, South St. Louis, and numerous neighborhoods within those communities. Each community presented its own unique challenges to its citizens and business owners. I have worked well with many alderpersons, neighborhood improvement specialists, and chairpersons of the different neighborhood associations. Together, we were able to make a lot of positive differences/changes in the past. I look forward to continuing to serve the citizens of St. Louis.

Captain Joe Morici,
Commander, Central Patrol
